Coronavirus in Kansas

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — The University of Kansas says it will test for COVID-19 all students, faculty, and staff who return to campus for the fall semester.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports Chancellor Douglas Girod said in a video message Wednesday that the university has made arrangements with the Clinical Reference Laboratory in nearby Lenexa to conduct the saliva testing.

On-campus housing at the university will be setting aside rooms for quarantining if students do exhibit COVID-19 symptoms or test positive for the respiratory virus.
